Sabbath

Old Testament Sabbath, Day of rest. We are not to do any work for our Salvation. Deuteronomy 5:14,15 Here the Israelites are servants in the Land of Egypt and the Lord thy God brought thee out thence through a mighty hand. Therefore the Lord thy God commanded thee to keep the Sabbath day. A Picture of Salvation, where God does the work. Acts 2: 26-27 My flesh shall rest in Hope. Christ is our Hope. His flesh waited with out cruption for its salvation.

Hebrews 4:1 Let us therefore fear, lest, a promise being left [us] of entering into his rest, any of you should seem to come short of it. {4:2} For unto us was the gospel preached, as well as unto them: but the word preached did not profit them, not being mixed with faith in them that heard [it. ]{4:3} For we which have believed do enter into rest, as he said, As I have sworn in my wrath, if they shall enter into my rest: although the works were finished from the foundation of the world. {4:4} For he spake in a certain place of the seventh [day] on this wise, And God did rest the seventh day from all his works. {4:5} And in this [place] again, If they shall enter into my rest. {4:6} Seeing therefore it remaineth that some must enter therein, and they to whom it was first preached entered not in because of unbelief: {4:7} Again, he limiteth a certain day, saying in David, To day, after so long a time; as it is said, To day if ye will hear his voice, harden not your hearts. 4:8 For if Jesus had given them rest, then would he not afterward spoken of another day. {4:9} There remaineth therefore a rest to the people of God. {4:10} For he that is entered into his rest, he also hath ceased from his own works, as God [did] from his. {4:11} Let us labour therefore to enter into that rest, lest any man fall after the same example of unbelief.

Trust Means Joy

For our heart shall rejoice in him, because we have trusted in his holy name. (Psalm 33:21)

The root of faith produces the flower of heart-joy. We may not at the first rejoice, but it comes in due time. We trust the Lord when we are sad, and in due season He so answers our confidence that our faith turns to fruition, and we rejoice in the Lord. Doubt breeds distress, but trust means joy in the long run.

The assurance expressed by the psalmist in this verse is really a promise held out in the hands of holy confidence. Oh, for grace to appropriate it. If we do not rejoice at this moment, yet we shall do so, as surely as David’s God is our God.

Let us meditate upon the Lord’s holy name that we may trust Him the better and rejoice the more readily. He is in character holy, just, true, gracious, faithful, and unchanging. Is not such a God to be trusted? He is all wise, almighty, and everywhere present; can we not cheerfully rely upon Him? Yes, we will do so at once and do so without reserve. Jehovah-Jireh will provide; Jehovah-Shalom will send peace; Jehovah-Tsidkenu will justify; Jehovah-Shammah will be forever near; and in Jehovah-Nissi we will conquer every foe. They that know Thy name will trust Thee; and they that trust Thee will rejoice in Thee, O Lord.

PRAYER IS A TOOL IN GOD’S HAND

God does not need the prayers of His people to do His will. In fact, He has done and still does many things without the accompanying prayers of any of His people. For example, He created the universe without the prayers of anyone. Also, no one can intelligently pray for all that is needed to sustain it in all of its amazing detail. And yet, in God’s wisdom, He has decided to use the conversation He has with His people to accomplish His will, especially His will of salvation. Like a father who delights to work with his child, weak and bumbling as that child is, God has chosen to create a desire to pray for His will in the hearts of His people and then answers their prayers. Perhaps we can better understand this dimension of prayer when we compare it to God’s method of spreading His Word. As in all things, God’s salvation plan is totally in His hands. He does not need the participation of His people to send His gospel into the world. But as an expression of the love He has for His people, He has included them in the joy of spreading His Word. As an expression of the love He has for His people, He works with them in the fields as they plant and water and as He brings the increase. God is wise and powerful enough to do His will without the prayers and efforts of His people. But He is loving enough to patiently use the tools of both His peoples’ prayers and their distribution of His word to build His kingdom and prepare the world for His return. However, we must not think that God is compelled to bring revival in response to a campaign in which many people pray earnestly for a mighty work of God. It is true that God’s children ought to pray because God does respond to and answer the prayers which express the desires of their hearts, as we read in Psalm 37:4. However, the full understanding of that verse is that God gives His children the heart to desire His will and then He fulfills that desire. That is, God always answers prayers in agreement with His own will. Fervent zeal, even for an apparently good purpose, is not a substitute for a knowledge of God’s will. Therefore, rather than insist that, because they have a holy desire, they can expect God to work as they request in their prayers, people who pray must always be concerned about God’s will. “Thy will be done” is more than a pious appendage to prayer. It is an accurate and honest recognition that God knows best, and some of the things He may do will surprise His people. As always, God’s will is done and that is the real desire of God’s people.

He that soweth to the Spirit shall of the Spirit reap life everlasting. (Galatians 6:8)

Sowing looks like a losing business, for we put good corn into the ground never to see it anymore. Sowing to the Spirit seems a very fanciful, dreamy business; for we deny ourselves and apparently get nothing for it. Yet if we sow to the Spirit by studying to live unto God, seeking to obey the will of God, and laying ourselves out to promote His honor, we shall not sow in vain. Life shall be our reward, even everlasting life. This we enjoy here as we enter into the knowledge of God, communion with God, and enjoyment of God. This life flows on like an ever-deepening, ever-widening river till it bears us to the ocean of infinite felicity, where the life of God is ours forever and ever.

Let us not this day sow to our flesh, for the harvest will be corruption, since flesh always tends that way; but with holy self-conquest let us live for the highest, purest, and most spiritual ends, seeking to honor our most holy Lord by obeying His most gracious Spirit. What a harvest will that be when we reap life everlasting! What sheaves of endless bliss will be reaped! What a festival will that harvest be! Lord, make us such reapers, for thy Son’s sake

THE FOUR HORSEMEN OF REVELATIONS 6:1-8

And I saw when the Lamb opened one of the seals, and I heard, as it were the noise of
thunder, one of the four beasts saying. Come and see.
And I saw, and behold a white horse: and he that sat on him had a bow; and a crown was
given unto him; and he went forth conquering and to conquer.
PRAY FOR UNDERSTANDING: Phil.4: 6 the reason for understanding Psalm119: 34,
Psalm119: 144
Luke 11:7 for everyone that asketh receiveth.
11Cor.4: 6 the light of the knowledge of the glory of God.
You need no teacher if and only if your a child of God: I John 2:27
John 14:15-17 God gives those that truly love him the HOLY SPIRIT, and the HOLY
SPIRIT shall teach you all things. Your eyes will be opened to the scriptures! And
You will understand.
Now back to Revelations 6. First when you see thunder and lighting. In the Bible it deals
with Judgment. Exodus 9:23-24
So whoever is coming is bringing judgment! He is riding upon a white horse. (There are
seven colors in the spectrum; RED, ORANGE, YELLOW, GREEN, CYAN, BLUE,
VIOLET.) All of which combine to produce a pure white light. (Seven color)
I John 1:5 this then is the message, which we have heard of Him, and declare unto you,
THAT GOD IS LIGHT and in Him, is no darkness at all. (Pure White Light)
Lev.13: 13 It is all turn white he is clean Rev. 3:5 He that overcometh, the same shall be
clothed in white raiment. I could go on farther to show how God is Light. But right now
in foresight that white represents clean and pure, and points to God.
HORSE: Shows forth power! Exodus 15:19,I king 10:29,I Kings20: 25
White, represents, clean, he that over come it, points to God in ever way. The horse
represents power and army.
So now we see who ever is bringing judgment, is coming on Power and Godliness.
This cannot be Satan as some commentaries state.
Lets go on, and he that sat on him had a bow. Ever wonder why a bow and no Arrows.
Could it be something else besides a bow and arrows? Didn’t we say who ever was
coming was bringing judgment and Godliness. Is there another bow that will point in our
direction? This has to be Christ no? Read Gen. 9:13 I do set my bow in the cloud.
Rev.4:3 there was a rainbow aroundabout the throne. Here it is! Rev.10:1 And I saw
another mighty angle come down from heaven, cloth with a cloud and a rainbow was
upon his head. He had a bow (rainbow) It is CHRIST, given a crown by his Father, Christ
is King of Kings And Lord of Lords.
Now he went forth conquering and to conquer. Where we not enemies of God before
Christ made all things new? Romans 5:10 For if, when we were enemies, we were
reconciled to God by the death of his son.
Christ comes on a white horse to bring the elect back to God! He Conquers!!
To God be the glory!

SEEK AND YE SHALL FIND!

Have you ever opened your Bible and asked the following: What does this passage really mean? How does it apply to my life? Why does some of the Bible seem irrelevant? What do these ancient cultures have to do with today? I Love God; why can’t I understand what He is saying to me through His Word? What’s going on in the lives of these Bible people? Many Christians do not read the Bible regularly. Why? Because in the pressures of daily living, they cannot find a connection between the timeless principles of scripture and the ever-present problems of day-by-day living. God urges us to apply His Word ( Isaiah 42:23; I Corinthians 10:11; 2 Thessalonians3:4 ) but too often we stop at accumulating Bible Knowledge. This is why I developed this web-site and the page on Bible study. Applying God’s Word is a vital part of one’s relationship with God; it is the evidence that we are obeying Him.

“I am the rose of Sharon.” — Song 2:1

Whatever there may be of beauty in the material world, Jesus Christ possesses all that in the spiritual world in a tenfold degree. Amongst flowers the rose is deemed the sweetest, but Jesus is infinitely more beautiful in the garden of the soul than the rose can in the gardens of earth. He takes the first place as the fairest among ten thousand. He is the sun, and all others are the stars; the heavens and the day are dark in comparison with Him, for the King in His beauty transcends all. “I am the rose of Sharon.” This was the best and rarest of roses. Jesus is not “the rose” alone, He is “the rose of Sharon,” just as He calls His righteousness “gold,” and then adds, “the gold of Ophir”—the best of the best. He is positively lovely, and superlatively the loveliest. There is variety in His charms. The rose is delightful to the eye, and its scent is pleasant and refreshing; so each of the senses of the soul, whether it be the taste or feeling, the hearing, the sight, or the spiritual smell, finds appropriate gratification in Jesus. Even the recollection of His love is sweet. Take the rose of Sharon, and pull it leaf from leaf, and lay by the leaves in the jar of memory, and you shall find each leaf fragrant long afterwards, filling the house with perfume. Christ satisfies the highest taste of the most educated spirit to the very full. The greatest amateur in perfumes is quite satisfied with the rose: and when the soul has arrived at her highest pitch of true taste, she shall still be content with Christ, nay, she shall be the better able to appreciate Him. Heaven itself possesses nothing which excels the rose of Sharon. What emblem can fully set forth His beauty? Human speech and earth-born things fail to tell of Him. Earth’s choicest charms commingled, feebly picture His abounding preciousness. Blessed rose, bloom in my heart for ever!

“Remember the word unto Thy servant, upon which Thou hast caused me to hope.” — Ps 119:49

Day 28

Whatever your especial need may be, you may readily find some promise in the Bible suited to it. Are you faint and feeble because your way is rough and you are weary? Here is the promise—”He giveth power to the faint.” When you read such a promise, take it back to the great Promiser, and ask Him to fulfil His own word. Are you seeking after Christ, and thirsting for closer communion with Him? This promise shines like a star upon you—”Blessed are they that hunger and thirst after righteousness, for they shall be filled.” Take that promise to the throne continually; do not plead anything else, but go to God over and over again with this—”Lord, Thou hast said it, do as Thou hast said.” Are you distressed because of sin, and burdened with the heavy load of your iniquities? Listen to these words—”I, even I, am He that blotteth out thy transgressions, and will no more remember thy sins.” You have no merit of your own to plead why He should pardon you, but plead His written engagements and He will perform them. Are you afraid lest you should not be able to hold on to the end, lest, after having thought yourself a child of God, you should prove a castaway? If that is your state, take this word of grace to the throne and plead it: “The mountains may depart, and the hills may be removed, but the covenant of My love shall not depart from thee.” If you have lost the sweet sense of the Saviour’s presence, and are seeking Him with a sorrowful heart, remember the promises: “Return unto Me, and I will return unto you;” “For a small moment have I forsaken thee, but with great mercies will I gather thee.” Banquet your faith upon God’s own word, and whatever your fears or wants, repair to the Bank of Faith with your Father’s note of hand, saying, “Remember the word unto Thy servant, upon which Thou hast caused me to hope.”
